'''''Power Windows''''' is the twelveth studio album by Music/{{Rush}}, released in 1985. Released at the height of the "synth-era", this album showed Rush going [[UpToEleven full 80's]] with digital production, keyboards, synthesizers, sequencers, samplers, etc. The sound was also simplified more, going from progressive rock to a more electronic, arena rock sound.

* VindicatedByHistory: This album was released smack in the middle of the band's synth phase, which a lot of fans were not happy with at the time. In the years since its release, however, most fans have either come to like the album or at least dislike it less.
